Re: A drugs gang has been jailed for a total of sixty-two-and-a-half years after South Wales Police disrupted a drugs run from London to Cardiff and uncovered a sophisticated and lucrative criminal operation.<br />
Seven men were sentenced today after they were each convicted of being involved in the supply of Class A and B drugs at previous hearings at Cardiff Crown Court.<br />
The jury heard officers from the force’s Organised Crime Unit confronted driver Stuart Jarman at Membury Services on the M4 on March 15th this year – and discovered 2kg of cocaine. Analysis of the Class A drug found it was 80% pure with a street value of £450,000.<br />
Jarman’s arrest led officers to six other gang members – as well as a large-scale cannabis factory in Ammanford and another in Waunarlwyd, as well as an illegally-held live handgun.<br />
The following are today starting lengthy sentences after being convicted of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs:<br />
Stuart Jarman, 41, of Garden City, Rhymney, jailed for 6 years;<br />
Lec Gjoka, 42, of Greenwich, London, jailed for 14 years;<br />
Jason Theobald, 42, of Hill Street, Rhymney, jailed for 10 years;<br />
Lyndon Evans, 37, of Wind Street, Ammanford, jailed for nine years;<br />
John Knight, 36, of Pleasant Street, Pentre, jailed for 18 years.<br />
Evans and Knight had also admitted a separate charge of conspiring to supply cannabis, alongside Anthony Vobe, 41, of Garnant, Ammanford, who was jailed for three years for conspiracy to supply cannabis.<br />
A seventh defendant, Richard Phillips, 51, of Barnabas Close, Waunarlwydd, Swansea, was jailed for two-and-a-half years after he pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm whilst banned from doing so due to previous convictions, and conspiracy to produce cannabis. It was at his farm that officers located the firearm and one cannabis factory.<br />
The second cannabis factory was located in Ammanford and – at the time of being raided – had the potential to net the gang a further estimated £70,000.<br />
